Dream no small dreams.

i dream of going to Heaven.

That’s as big a dream as i can dream.

i pray and hope (and dream) that my Father-In-Law (91) is destined to see his dream come true in the coming days and weeks.

A third simple question

Where would we be if we didn’t have the capacity to forgive?

It’s been following me for a few days and needs to be addressed

It’s been following me for a few days and needs to be addressed.

i can sense the personality differences between two people that are working closely with me.

There seems to be two obvious choices:

  1. Get stuck in the middle and become co-dependent.
  2. Stay out of it, but be clear that it needs to go away or someone will no longer fit on the team.

Hard choices.

At this point in life, clear expectations and clear accountability provide peace and contentment.

Life is too short to tolerate unprofessional behavior brought on by issues that are an adult’s responsibility to manage.

PS. Did i mention that in 10 days i turn 57. To remain true to a crazy, heretical dream, i will be living the final three years of a life redesigned to accomplish absolutely everything i want to accomplish based on an artificial deadline of my 60th birthday. This dream officially began on my 50th birthday, allowing for a decade to do everything in life without any regrets – using a “real” deadline to promote decision making (that would inevitably get postponed for “later”).

Use your imagination and dream big

Two days before Christmas. Haven’t bought a single gift.

But have thought about a million gifts that can’t be wrapped.

All tucked, invisibly, under the tree.

Who needs more things?

Change The World Poem

“When I was young and free my imagination had no limits, I dreamed I could change the world.

As I grew older and wiser, I realized the world would not change, and I decided to shorten my sights somewhat and change only my Country. But it seemed immovable.

As I entered my twilight years, in one last attempt, I sought only to change my family, those closest to me; but alas, they would have none of it.

And now here I lie on my deathbed, and I realize perhaps for the first time, that if I had only changed myself first, then by example I may have influenced my family, and with their encouragement and support, I may have bettered my country.

And who knows? I may have changed the world.”
